1976 GMC ELEGANZA II MOTORHOME

To date, the only motorhome to be manufactured in its entirety by a vehicle maker. GM enlisted engineers from multiple fields including Aerospace.

The efforts brought forth a motorhome unlike any other. A front wheel drive platform with no traditional solid rear axles. The rear wheels are instead mounted alongside the frame, and assisted by air ride, allowing for a low center of gravity and ease of entry. Not to mention one of the nicest rides of any motorhome on the road. 

All of this engineering and features came at a cost that meant only a handful were produced. 13,000 over a 6 year period.

Unique in the collector and RV world is the industry that started up to maintain and improve this one of a kind coach. Parts and retrofit and improvement items are easily available throughout North America. Many clubs also means great access to information and innovations.

Be sure that you are not shy if you are interested in purchasing this motorhome! It creates conversations where ever it goes. 

As for the condition of the GMC, it has had upgrades and refurbishing too numerous to completely mention. 

Some items of note are :

Newly rebuilt original 455 Oldsmobile to high output specifications. 

Reimagined  interior fabrics front to back. (Original cabinetry and bathroom still appear as new).

Updated one of the two A/C units. 

Fridge replaced. 

New genset, recently serviced.

New tires and upgraded Alcoa wheels. 

Dolphin guages and leather seats up front. 

7,700 miles on the upgrades

75,000 miles on the coach at the time of upgrading.
